Nanny state blue cards could catch Bill Shorten
Opposition Leader Bill Shorten, under amendments to “blue card’ child contact laws, could be prevented from visiting schools or children’s sports events in Queensland.
The Queensland Parliament today is debating ‘blue card’ amendments in a move to cast a wider net to cover more professionals and others who through their work or sport come into contact with children under 18.
The new proposals will have some unintended consequences in their megalomaniacal thrust to prevent professionals such as photographers, personal trainers and even politicians from having contact with children.
The Labor ‘hero’ Shorten would be caught up in the net over persistent rape allegations from 1986 made by then 16 year old Kathy Sherriff.
The allegations were dismissed at the time.
Her latest Facebook post says she has engaged Barrister Peter Faris QC to force Victoria Police to investigate new evidence.
The allegations were again raised in 2013 by journalist Shane Dowling when he named Shorten as being under investigation by police.
Kathy Sheriff’s complaint was again dismissed by police in 2014 for lack of evidence claiming there was no reasonable chance of a conviction. They did add if more evidence was to come to light or new witnesses were found the case could be reopened.
She said further evidence had been found and with her barrister recently visited police asking for the case to be re-investigated.
Myopic Victoria Police, which can’t find black African gangs robbing, pillaging and assaulting white people will probably struggle trying to investigate Sherriff’s allegations.
In any case the major media has been most reluctant to publish any of Shorten’s sordid sexual peccadillos.
